Radical Film Night - Fred Thompson & Utah Phillips On The IWW
(Wed Dec 16, 7pm)

The Lucy Parsons Center and the Industrial Workers of the World will be offering a program of documentaries on the IWW at 7pm, December 16. The two 1/2 hour DVDs, first shown on Chicago cable television, consist of a short agitational oration by Utah Phillips, an interview with longtime IWW activist Fred Thompson, and a talk by Staughton Lynd illustrating the differences in approach between the IWW and the AFL/CIO and more. To be followed by a discussion of the themes of the program.

International Day To End Violence Against Sex Workers
(Thu Dec 17, 7pm)

Join Sex Workers Outreach Project's Boston chapter in remembering and honoring sex workers murdered this year in Massachusetts and around the globe. The event will include a presentation by Sex Workers Internet Radio Library, commentary by Tara Hurley of the documentary "Happy Endings?" and a reading of the names of each sex worker who was murdered this year. Following, we will take a meditative walk with red umbrellas, a common symbol of sex worker rights and safety, and will observe a brief moment of silence. Afterwards, we'll gather back for coffee, tea, snacks, and a chance to network and socialize with the community.

Radical Film Night - Democracy 101
(Wed Dec 23, 7pm)

Made in Pittsburgh within five days of the G20 summit by a team from Pittsburgh Indymedia, Twin Cities Indymedia, Chicago Indymedia, Glassbead Collective, and Mobile Broadcast News, a new documentary: "Democracy 101 Rough Cut)". Democracy 101 is a look at the policing and pattern of issues that arise during National Special Security Events. Made with footage from the recent repression of dissent in Pittsburgh, salvaged from the broken cameras, stolen video and arrested reporters, and independent journalists from around the country.
